From Tears to Triumph: Ashley Brown

#VirtualAssistants #MomBoss

Hi Ashley, it's great to have you here today. I love how you describe yourself as a "woman full of determination and life." Can you tell us a little more about yourself and what drives you?

Absolutely! Well, as you mentioned, I'm a mom to a toddler girl, which is a full-time job in itself. But I'm also a young widow and a proud Leo woman. I've gone through some tough times in my life, but I don't let it stop me from pushing forward every day. What drives me is being an example for my daughter and showing her how amazing it is to be a woman. And of course, being surrounded by the people I love and who love me back.

I can definitely relate to that. It sounds like you have a lot of great qualities and experiences that you bring to the table. Can you tell us more about your brand, Assisting With Elegance LLC?

Sure thing. I started Assisting With Elegance LLC as a Virtual Assistant Company to help other moms in business with various administrative and social media tasks throughout their day. I'm here to help moms when they feel stressed, overwhelmed, and lost within their business because they need a little extra help. Being a mom is not for the weak and when you are also a business owner, know it's okay to ask for help and that's why I'm here.

That's so great that you're able to provide that kind of support for other moms in business. What's your latest release or project that you're working on?

My latest release is the relaunch of my business. I've added some new services and taken some away. And I'm currently working on getting into podcasting, writing a book, and more for young widow moms who wear a new hat and feel like they don't have a community to relate to. So stay tuned!

Wow, that sounds really exciting! How can a person, client, or supporter gain from this project that you're working on?

Well, for one, they can receive top-notch support for their business through admin and social media services. I treat your business as if it's my own, so I give it the same care and support that I give my own business. And with my upcoming projects, they can have someone in their corner who can relate to their experiences. I may be only 29, but my eyes have been opened up to life experiences that most don't experience until later in life.

It's so important to have that kind of support and understanding, especially when you're going through tough times. What's something that you've learned about your industry that you wish you would have known earlier, but had to learn the hard way?

Something I wish I would have learned earlier is that everyone tries to do the same thing because they see the next person offering it and getting leads. Just because someone offers something doesn't mean it's meant for you to do the same. They may be an expert in that area and you're not, and it shows. I learned this when I first started out because I hadn't fully tapped into my potential. I sat down one day and said, "What are the things you love to do and are passionate about?" Once I did that, everything started to fall into place.

That's a really valuable lesson. It's so important to find your own niche and do what you're passionate about. Upon discovering that, what's coming up within the next 6 months regarding your business and personal goals?

Within the next 6 months, I'm really focusing on growing my business and reaching more moms who need my support. I'm also excited to launch my podcast and start sharing my experiences as a young widow mom, and hopefully connect with others who can relate to my story. And on a personal level, I want to continue to be the best mom I can be to my daughter and make more time for self-care and personal growth.

That sounds like a great plan. Finally, what advice would you give to other moms who are also trying to balance their business and personal life?

My advice would be to not be afraid to ask for help and to prioritize self-care. As moms, we often put ourselves last, but it's important to take care of our own needs as well. And when it comes to balancing your business and personal life, it's all about finding the right balance for you. It's okay to set boundaries and say no to things that don't align with your priorities. And don't forget to celebrate your wins, no matter how small they may seem. It's all about progress, not perfection.
